The River Thames is an often undiscovered haven of stunning scenery, wonderful wildlife and brilliant natural beauty. As well as the famous stretches passing through our biggest cities and towns, there is a hidden side to the river - wild and natural, but surprisingly accessible. This guidebook, compiled by the two major Thames charities, contains a wealth of information on over 150 of the best places to explore the real Thames wilderness, along with enjoyable walks and activities along its course. Organised geographically, the book gives information on the history and character of each stretch of the river and the featured sites within it, travelling from source to sea. Illustrated with maps and photos, the text highlights which plants and wildlife to watch out for, activities you can do, how to get there and nearby moorings, cycle paths and car parks. Each section features a circular walk, tying together several of the sites and accompanied by an enchanting hand-drawn map. An essential source of ideas for days out and handy for on the go, Exploring the Thames Wilderness opens up the beauty of the Thames to everyone.

"New Zealand missionaries have been variously painted as heroes, villains, or figures of fun ; and in this portrait of the origins of the Wesleyan mission at Whangaroa in the 1820s the reader can take his choice. For the story is largely told in the missionaries' own words, from contemporary letters and journals which have gradually become available in libraries and archives throughout New Zealand, Australia and Britain. The first part is a narrative, beginning with pious hopes, continuing with the slow erosion of unexpected stress, ending finally with an attack on the mission station and the missionaries fleeing for their lives. It is a dramatic story, told with a day-by-day human detail which gives it some of the immediacy of a historical novel. The second part of the book tackles the detective problem of why the mission station was attacked and by whom ; and goes on to examine the range of sanctions controlling behaviour of missionaries and Maoris and the exchange of religious ideas between them. It challenges many accepted views about the missionary role and the origin of race relations in New Zealand and is a case study inviting comparison with missionary and contact situations throughout the world."--Inside front cover.

The legendary Greek figure Orpheus was said to have possessed magical powers capable of moving all living and inanimate things through the sound of his lyre and voice. Over time, the Orphic theme has come to indicate the power of music to unsettle, subvert, and ultimately bring down oppressive realities in order to liberate the soul and expand human life without limits. The liberating effect of music has been a particularly important theme in twentieth-century African American literature. The nine original essays in Black Orpheus examines the Orphic theme in the fiction of such African American writers as Jean Toomer, Langston Hughes, Claude McKay, James Baldwin, Nathaniel Mackey, Sherley Anne Williams, Ann Petry, Ntozake Shange, Alice Walker, Gayl Jones, and Toni Morrison. The authors discussed in this volume depict music as a mystical, shamanistic, and spiritual power that can miraculously transform the realities of the soul and of the world. Here, the musician uses his or her music as a weapon to shield and protect his or her spirituality. Written by scholars of English, music, women's studies, American studies, cultural theory, and black and Africana studies, the essays in this interdisciplinary collection ultimately explore the thematic, linguistic structural presence of music in twentieth-century African American fiction.
